- Only six drummers are in town today soliciting orders for the various firms they represent.
- R. H. Cottrell is around town today shaking hands with his old friends after an absence of sixteen months.
- The real estate transfers appear to be few and far between. Our real estate agents, however have not yet hung out their shingles locating their offices.
- The all absorbing topic among our towns-men is “bricks”, and to judge from the conversation of the little group of by-standers every man has got a great big “red brick” on the brain
- A heated discussion and the best of the season was held last Monday evening. The question was, “Resolved that fire is a more destructive element than water.” The Historical and Debating club are doing good work and the well-filled house every week shows the interest taken in the meetings.
- Our neighbors on the north at Layton appear to be booming their end of the town. Among the new enterprises are the following: A new saloon to be opened in the near future by Bonnemort & Day; a mercantile establishment, to be run by W. A. Hyde. Layton & Evans anticipate leading out in the butcher business and will supply our northern neighbors with meats of the choicest quality. The boys at Layton have our good wishes
- The progressive euchre party given by Messrs. O. A. and W. Taylor and Mrs. D. Wessels at their home last Monday evening was a decided success. Forty-eight persons took part in the game and many of the guests did not play. A good, sociable time was had and the best of feeling prevailed. The prizes were awarded to James H. Larkins and Charles Cottrell, jr. The remainder of the evening was spent, as usual, in music, singing, social chats, etc. Great credit is due the hosts and hostess for the able manner in which they entertained their friends, and all felt like congratulating them on the success of the entertainment.
- It now takes two agents to transact the business at the Central depot, but the office is inadequate for the business. A town doing an average business of from eight to ten thousand dollars per month is entitled to far greater accomodations than are to be had at the Utah Central depot. The warehouse and waiting room are two small, insignificant rooms unworthy of their name and patrons of the road who are unfortunate enough to have to wait for a belated train, often have to stand out on the platform in a drenching rain or snow storm because of there being no room on the inside. A few days ago the waiting room was full of ladies (four its full capacity) and the gentlemen had to take their stand on the platform in one of the most driving snow storms of the season. It is not often that the people complain, but when we consider the above figures are only a small estimate for the business transacted here, we do not think it would be asking too much to ask the railroad company to appropriate one month’s takings for the supplying of a long felt want, the building of a new depot.
